This learning experience is ideal for individuals working within the telecommunications sector who have the drive and ambition to get their careers to the next level and help improve how their organization migrates and embraces the cloud opportunity.

The enterprise selling landscape has changed dramatically in the past few years. Driven by changing the telecommunications industry is going through a period of profound transition. Having been disrupted by digital-native companies from across the media and internet, the telecom services they have traditionally offered like voice, data, and messaging and the revenues they have generated, are under threat. They must transform their operations and business models to keep up with ever-changing customer expectations.

Traditionally most telecom providers rely on large computing infrastructure running a diverse set of applications to deliver, manage, and bill services. The sheer complexity and size of this “in house” IT operation prevents Telco agility and reduces their competitive edge. Migrating to the cloud can reduce the dependence on internal computing resource requirements and release the excess for use by paying customers. Doing so reduces internal costs and increases revenue streams — a win-win situation for a telecom cloud provider.

In the not-too-distant past, cloud computing primarily served as a catalyst for technological change, leaving its potential for driving business innovation virtually untapped. Yet cloud has the power to fundamentally shift competitive landscapes by providing a new platform for creating and delivering business value. In this three day course we will introduce the student to all aspects of cloud. The course explains the potential of cloud as a business enabler within the context of current telecommunications industry trends, migration strategies, where the Telco fits into the cloud eco-system and look at the telecom cloud marketplace.

Note: Each session is followed by student activity time. At the end of the course the students will present their Business Model Canvas on the Telecom Cloud Opportunity back to the course trainer and the other course delegates.

Note: This course is not delivered with the FoldOut methodology.


The only prerequisite is an open mind, a wiliness to learn and a desire to contribute to the digital future of your company. The program has been designed for team leaders; managers and senior management, from both technical and commercial teams, who are responsible for designing, building, optimizing, maintaining, growing and keeping secure the next generation telecoms operator.
